Yeah they have the silver, but they also have like a black chrome (rare to see them) that looks kind of smokey in my opinion. I would have preferred those, but I got the chrome 128’s for (if I remember correctly) $150 a wheel. So no brainer moment.

Ahh.. the black wheels.. Well…. The reason, one day maybe… I may wrap her up in a matte laguna seca skin.

Maybe… Just a thought.

I've been running michelin for winter past couple of years now. For this winter I bought 245/40r20 and 275/35r20 nokia hakkapeliitta 9 for E65.

I actually rarely have any problem with them. But i can also appreciate where that thought comes from. I suspect they go from 0-100 very quick when they do strip
